Might I draw your attention to this excellent Queer Villain Pride Flag art? by @distressedegg

From the explanatory notes:
"An activism thing, except for when it isn't.
"A freaky sex thing, except for when it isn't.
"An avenue for personal self-actualization through identity experimentation, except for when it isn't.
"A manifestation of the slogan "be gay, do crimes".
"A coalition of people who grew up seeing queer-coded villains in media and were like "fuck it, big mood".
"A hopeless but fun attempt at community-building through campy theatricality in our nightmarish modern times.
"Bwa ha ha ha ha ha, etc."

This is such a #mood for me I don't even know how to handle it except by screaming "TAKE MY MONEY YOU MONSTER!" and running away to crouch by the mailbox.

Stop policing POC on how to react to things.

Stop policing POC on how to defend themselves.

Stop policing POC.

The Science Behind Why Introverts Struggle To Put Their Thoughts Into Words

Noting: spoken words

"If all else fails, and words escape you, don’t feel embarrassed — your brain is doing what comes naturally to it, and that is to pause and reflect. If you’re being quiet, you’re in good company with other deep-thinking introverts; as the brilliant physicist Stephen Hawking once noted, “Quiet people have the loudest minds.”

It's amazing to me how many hours are wasted by companies trying to find clever ways to protect sensitive data or resources that they don't actually need to have in the first place

Every single security person should have a habit of pushing for people to consider the simplest security control: stop doing the risky thing

If there's good reason to reject that option, fine: we can mitigate the risk. But *make people defend the choice*

Show more, your cosy queer space is a mastodon instance for those who are queer or queer-adjacent who would like a more pleasant social media experience.
